just living by that philosophy, no whining. >> give a warm muscatine welcome to our next president, senator barack obama. [applause] [applause] >> and then you have the situation in this footage that people were starting to notice senior advisers all the way down. i remember talking to john dell staccato. he is the d so he was a consultant and he was saying what inspired him about this footage was needless stuff we have been shooting but senator obama had reported a birthday message to a staffer just because they weren't able to be on the trail and he wanted to make sure that she would have a happy birthday. i don't know if she did i don't know but after seeing it, this was so cool and authentic a wonderfully get to videos like this incorporating the backstage element into more visual media so the hybrid of this plus the standard commercial ended up being like the austin caucus spot i believe is what it was written as. and we did tons of these because we like liked this so much. >> are we ready now? >> the next president of the united states, barack obama. >> we have got a chance t
. that is not what junior people do. they are always setting themselves up for the next thing. i don't think obama has made the mental adjustment. >> host: so he needs to let others set the priorities for him? is that what he did? >> guest: that is exactly what he did. >> host: we didn't hear that much about that at the democratic convention, that we? [laughter] bob woodward and his new book seemed to be very much in agreement on the discussions in 2011. talk about those. >> guest: we have probably talked to some of the same people. although i have no way of knowing. here is an extraordinary moment. the republican party brings the tea party back from the dead immediate control of the congress. john boehner is the speaker of the house. john boehner realizes that he has to confront his own people if he is going to save the credit rating them back on moody's and save it from downgrade. this is going to be a political disaster. john boehner can fill in the back of his scalp that this is going to be burning on the republicans. he feels political blame but it's also worried about the country. two hearts
the next four years. it's very striking in the obama team announcement his campaign the last five weeks which is what, the last four years something like that. >> if you elect obama the next four years than the last four years. that's true and for reelecting obama but it's not an inspiring forward-looking slogan about what mitt romney will do. obama has cast his lot and it's hard to blame the guy that wants to get pretty elected -- reelected with a approach to the democratic and independent constituencies to try to scare them about romney is just bush and all that. i don't think we are going to get the training he would like. i love little less pessimistic that means they can't govern effectively. i do think reality matters as we have been saying. we are going to hit a cliff in all kind of ways. but it is a real cliff in 2013 in the sense that you cannot sustain these obviously for too long they can't keep printing money and expect the world to take it or why treasury forever. the economy is slow and may be going into another dip. the foreign policy challenges. i think the next presiden
the obama staff and surrogates in their appearances next 20 four hours push this back being a choice between two people. mitt romney moved it back more referendum on the president. we have the official obama spin. this is the literal party line, what they're going to be saying in their tv appearances in the morning. they say mitt romney continues to fail the details test. tax cuts, replacing obama, replacing wall street reform. double down on the big economic ideas that crashed the economy. what is missing from that line? anything about the president. just about mitt romney. >> that is consistent what we heard from governor o'malley just now saying i was listening very closely for new idea on job creation. i didn't hear one. we're hearing those talking points already. >> undoubtedly the coverage next couple days will be interesting. we head into a vice-presidential aol debate. the last vice-presidential debate got more viewers than the presidential debates largely because of sarah palin. >> call me joe. owe biden. >> and i think this will be another very well-watched and spirited debate. two
explain the next four years. the case for obama was not a substantive case for changing policies. hillary was making a similar case with a better resume. the case for obama was a political case. why those policies never seemed to change. implied that hillary was part of the problem. that america couldn't afford another decade of clinton wars. the political pettiness and nastiness that exploded during the clinton era was the fundamental obstacle to fundamental change. hillary's one word explanation for the persistence of the status quo was republicans. obama's one word explanation was washington. the endless than cycles, insult industries and platitudes that made tough choices and common sense compromise impossible. as a symbol and a participant hillary was inextricably linked to that washington gridlock machine. the bickering and parsing, the turtle boomer driven real mitigation of the 60s. she could never make a credible we are one people speech or bring people together to solve big problems. she tried and failed in 1994 with her husband's health care plan. the case for hillary was she k
ginsburg will try to hold on for the next four years. if obama wins, kennedy and scalia will try to hold on, but you never know what'll happen. >> can you speculate what was in roberts mind when he famously replied that the job of the justice was just [inaudible] as opposed to change the rules? >> well, that is the most quoted thing he has ever said. 80% of the time, critically about him, look, we all, supreme court justices included, perceive ourselves in certain ways and i don't think john roberts it's up in the morning and says i am a judicial activist and is trying to disrupt the united states. clarence thomas does wake up and say that. [laughter] i don't mean that in a critical way. clarence thomas lily has a very different attitude towards president than any of the other justices. justice story has senate. thomas doesn't really believe in the rule of presidents. he thinks that these decisions are wrong and we ought to overturn the mall. and that is a very different attitude than any of the other justices. roberts has an image of himself i'm going to call myself an umpire but i'm reall
pac, i'm happy to defend barack obama because he's the next and best president of the united states, and that's financial. but do i wish this didn't have to be? yeah, i do. and i think experiencing -- in connecticut we have public financing campaigns, and you know what? they work just fine. and the voters while they may say they're not that happy with taxpayer-funded campaigns, you know, things have gone pretty smoothly in a lot of these places that have public finance, so i just think the rhetoric doesn't. match the reality at the end of the day. more likely i think we'll see changes to the laws and, um, and then the next incarnation of super, super, super pacs. >> well, we want that thank you very much for coming and let you know that mike and i are running a cam concern campaign in new jersey this year to informs $750 million in higher education facilities which we haven't done in new jersey for almost a quarter of a century. i have to do one last plug for a good reason. so thank you very much.

[laughter] and i don't mean that in a critical way. clarence thomas really has a very different attitude toward president than any of the other justices. justice scalia has said this. he

numbers in the next round the conspirators will now be being accused the this the obama people as opposed to the romney people. it goes with the turf. >> do you have any sense of how white evangelical likely voters are breaking votes in battleground states and nationally? >> take the harder question. >> it is very clear for mitt romney. quite a wide margin. if i recall the last numbers, his support was in the mid 60s. i don't think it is -- the rest is not necessarily support for barack obama. it divides between support for barack obama and undecided. >> back to the issue of mobilization, the key is going to be as we get into the final two weeks, whose folks show up and the group that is the biggest group to look at right now are the 18 to 29-year-olds because as we look at the likely voter models they are not there and the numbers in terms of turn out as they were four years ago so expect president obama to visit a lot of college campuses. >> that was his margin last time. [in animal] -- >> i was here. two quick questions. the lot of numbers flying around. is this on your web site? f we
barack obama is a nice guy who couldn't get the job done. that's one of the attacks. in the next commercial break you have an ad that says barack obama was never a nice guy. he's a radical socialist, clean energy lunatic who's trying to take your job. and the result is, more money actually didn't feed into a larger narrative in a way that i think the romney campaign would have preferred. the second thing that the super pac money is less effective now is that under fec rules, or fcc rules, super pacs campaigns are able to get the lowest available rates for the advertising on television advertising right now, right before an election. super pacs are not able to do that. super pacs in the same market are spending far more, sometimes twice or three times as much in the campaign is to get the same money. the third reason i think that you are seeing super pacs been less effective now than they were early on is that in just the last month or two, obama because we're getting close to the election, paying more attention to it because we have the conventions, are waking up and giving more
trouble ahead. this is about the drop in durable goods that was reported yesterday and the headline next to it is, obama trumpets revised job data, saying we are adding jobs. how would you describe our economy today? >> guest: i think right now the economy has worsened. you have got a jobs problem pretty severe and persistent. at 8.1% of the country without a job and of course we know that does not include those who have simply stopped looking so then employment rate is or like 11 or 12% of the country. you mentioned the durable goods numbers yesterday. that indicated things like washing machines and other big-ticket expensive items, waiting to put big money down on important purchases and then of course you have got the gdp numbers yesterday which came out and showed that growth was revised downward, economic growth was revised downward to show it a gross number of 1.3% which is pretty anemic. that is down from 1.7% so from that report we say things have actually worsened in the last couple of months in the neo-got the issue of business is businesses really sitting on their cash. right
about the drop in durable goods that was reported yesterday and the headline next to it is obama trumpets revise job data, saying we are adding jobs. how would you describe our economy today? >> guest: well, i think right now the economy has worsening. you've got jobs problem pretty severe and persistent. 8.1% of the country without a job. of course we know that does not include those who simply stopped looking. the unemployment rate is more like 11% or 12% of the country. he mentioned durable goods numbers yesterday that indicated the big ticket items things like washing machines and other big-ticket expensive items has slowed. people are waiting to put big money down on important purchases. and then of course he got the gdp numbers yesterday, which came out and showed that growth was revised downward, economic growth revised downward to show a growth number of 1.3%, which is pretty anemic. down from 1.7%. from that report we see things have actually worsened in the last couple months. then effect the issue of business is sitting on cash. right now corporate america frankly is p
greater growth in the second quarter of ?iew and still lost than president obama had in this quarter so the economy is worse off. i also know that unemployment is higher than it was under george walker bush. i can't say for sure, but i think the next highest unemployment rate that a president's been re-elected at was 7.2% under reagan. i can't say for sure, but i think it was under 6.5% for george hw bush. i don't know what the inflation rate or interest rate was, but the economy was in better shape in 1992 by any objective measure than it has in 2012 so president obama's in big trouble. >> hi, i just want to take the opportunity to thank you because you use your gifted brain and your considerable verbal skills, writing skills, energy, and fly all over. i'm grateful you're able to do that. >> my great pleasure, thank you. >> my question is what can little people, individual little people do the best right now to support mitt romney? i was a rick santorum supporter, and i'm grateful to have seen it play out. when everybody was played out, now it seems like we're all standing strong and f
of the us in the room, we had a real presidential contest right next door in virginia, and we could go over there and canvas and make a difference for president obama. seems to me a lot of us after that said, okay, now you're president, you go to it. that was a huge mistake. that doesn't answer your question, but it's just maybe adding to the question. i think over a period of time it really it -- it's a combination of getting more people who are community kateing in this way -- communicating in this way and all the ways, using social media and everything else, and there are people in the room who do that all the time, do fabulous work, it all makes a difference. it's organizing at the local level that we need to have that needs to get better, and the other thing is, i think, i would have thought we would have reached the tipping point by now, to use another author's term, and we have not, but my analogy, by reference to the progressive era sunlights that it's out -- suggests it's out there. .. >> my name is matthew. we don't want to -- we would also be useful and mine the data as it declin
in the next couple of days i'm going to be looking at the numbers in the other thing very quickly in terms of the minority vote. the other thing about barack obama's election in 2008 was the one something on the order of 43% of the white vote and in most of the national polls that is kind of where he is so that will be another number to look out for. the country is changing and in 2008, three-quarters of the electorate was white which was down from the mid-to high 80s 20 years ago and that number is going to change. and the question is in a very close election i don't think anyone thought it would get seven-point race. i think they thought it would be a two or three-point race. the metrics are there for him to win. speak to me, and i'm sorry to interrupt but to me i wanted to -- to meet the most stunning numbers from 2008, if you take out the 29-year-olds and look at the 30 plus mccain and obama tied and that shows you how important the youth vote is to the president by the way that is why you are seeing air force one showing up at airports near major university in three states on a regula
five weeks, what, the next four years will be no better than last four years, something like that. very positive. if you elect obama. i happen to believe that star and that's why i'm not for reelection president obama but is not a very inspiring forward-looking spoken about what mid-romney will do. it's hard to blame the guy who wants to get reelected with a pretty narrow cast, casting approach to democratic and independent constituencies to try to scare them about ron is just bush, there is a war on women and all that but i don't go get the kind of frame you would like. i'm a little is pessimistic. i do think reality matters, as we've been saying. we are going to hit the cliff in all kinds of ways. be any fiscal cliff in the real clip in 2013 is you can't sustain these deficits obviously for too long because they can't keep printing money and expect the world to take it or buy treasury notes forever. the economy is slow and they will be coming into another dip. they are foreign policy challenges i think the next president will have a moment between november 7, i agree just to begin nov
of the next ways, i think is using the experimental techniques to see what does move voters and get out of the sort of art official setting focus groups alone. >> host: on the note with the obama campaign since they had times four years ago to test it and four years later, is there any innovative or techniques they are using now anymore that you can -- >> guest: yeah. the experiment informed programs are really the thing. and they have been using in small narrow ways by some institutions, the cio, emily's list over the years the obama campaign has this year is a major advance. part of the problem with the way that people have tested messages historically is that you either have a poll that asking somebody who they support, and it they wills them a bunch of information. you see if moves or you ask somebody directly. if i told you romney hadn't paid taxes for x number of years make it more or less likely to vote for them. some people fell you would they move. people telling you they would move is a pretty sort of con ject yiewrl thing. i wouldn't cognitively trust anybody that would do un
's going continue to struggle on the front. i think the obama campaign going in to the debates, doesn't the burden here. but probably would, you know, should talk about what the next four years will be like, and i expect that that will happy during the debate. but i said that here. because i'm talking tactically here. the challenger has the burden. we have a history with barack obama. we have a sense what he's done. we have a sense what he's like and what he will do. when you're the challenger, you have to say why you will be cimpt. and obama did that in 2008, and that's the thing that romney is going have -- i think will be need to do. we are evaluating one of the president as the champion, so to speak in boxing terms. we are evaluating one of the challenger. if you don't play the role of the challenge netter minds of people, well, then it's hard to imagine you'll play the role of the champ well. that's my own sort of two cents on that. >> we all know that the words we use are very important. on the campaign that you worked on, how did the candidate choose which keywords or catch pha
manage in the next year. >> it's an interesting point. watching the presidential election, where neither candidate wants to talk about the specifics, get even closer talking specifics. you even have a case where the obama administration slowed the growth of medicare spending by $700 billion the big attack of republicans for having done not. in the environment where you can't talk about medicare, where no one would talk about -- everyone is just talking about loophole closes, how do you get from here to there? let me ask doug first. you save the environment would be different in 2013. other than this pressure you talk about for the rating agencies, what is going to get these guys singing to my all? >> they are not going to think oh my god. this environment is the worst, but this'll be the right time to fix it. you don't have to worry about economics not happening. it can be the second word and it's very unlikely that she can't avoid getting it to next year, where i think they're going to be outside pressures. capital market, cutting rating agencies and great leadership out of the white ho
the candidates and the party should be discussing. next wednesday night the presidential debate begins. this for in our discussion with the obama and romney campaigns and as we've looked at the party platform, we have seen lots of attention being paid to child care and early learning that we might have expected. both in the presidential and also in the congressional races. given the research that points to the impact of attention to their earliest years of life, and given the of vintages of child care and helping low-income workers, we might have expected, for example, democrats to focus on child care after obama had been criticized for allowing flexibility for states and welfare work requirements. given the gender gap that the republicans face and need to overcome and given that child care is an issue many working mothers have been concerned about for a long time we might have expected detention to be paid by republicans. as i reported in the recent huffingtonpost.com peace and others talked about there's been insufficient attention paid by the campaigns in the opinion of many. the si
business. look at president obama and his strategy with regard said drones and covert operations. it's very exceptional is the. is in this exceptional as the impulse something that could actually be more extreme in the next several years? >> i was with you right up until the end because exceptional rosamund isolationism are two different things. exceptional some can be the engine for imperial foreign policy. is the sense that america has a special role to play, of his income is back to the founding of the nation that leads to a tremendous amount of global activity. >> i was saying about those linked. >> let me be upon the first part of your premise. rahway's and isolationist nation we tell ourselves the smith. we sit here minding our business and people do things to us are there are evil people who hijack our foreign policy. the truth is the as states was not an isolationist power. we started off as a strip of lightly inhabited colonies along the coast of the atlantic and steadily for roughly 400 years expanded our word. if you want to call that an isolationist nation, don't really think th
and they don't start out being an obama proposal or a romney proposal or a democratic proposal. i am interested in exactly what is said in the debate in the next four weeks. whoever wins says in a week or two after the election. that is the time to step up and do the broader leadership and be tougher. >> what would you like to hear president obama singapore after the election? >> your view is as mine is, we are not going to have a deal that doesn't have revenues and spending in the biggest obstacle is on the revenue side and that, as i do believe, i have asked a lot of democratic senators that my perception is correct, and that is that republicans continue to believe that at the end of the day in the 11th hour, democrats will come together as they did in 2011 and 2010. one of the things the president has to do is to make it crystal clear that he is not going to accept a deal that doesn't have both revenues and spending. i think that when that becomes accepting, that is my fear of what we going to january 4. the sooner that is believed, that, to me, raises the predicate for both sides to get a b
should really just stick to the constitution as obama said. >> host: garrey on twitter rights the federal government should stay out of our bedrooms, out of the classroom, out of the board room and protect our borders. next is a call. cynthia is in district heights. welcome. >> caller: good morning. i agree with the number one point of obama as far as keeping us safe. but that doesn't necessarily mean just militarily. i think that the state's need to take care of themselves, and the government should be its own system with checks and balances where the state's fall short and the government comes in and makes sure the states do their job. it seems as though to me i have less trust in the government, and it seems as though it's become more of a celebrity issue instead of a government issue. i see the congress and the senate as celebrities more so than the people who are concerned with the welfare as a united states population. >> host: more debate news. this is from the kentucky newspaper about the upcoming vice presidential d date in central college in danville kentucky urging the october
